The Small Log Cabin...
Simply Serene!

A small log cabin nestled in the woods offers a refreshing respite from the hectic pace of life in the Digital Age.  The constant buzz of computers, cell phones and congested traffic is replaced by the quietude of nature.  Soaring multistory steel and glass towers are but distant memories in the serenity of a single story log hideaway.  Picturesque compositions inspired by the past, the little log cabins featured here are bound to warm your heart and stir your soul!

Tucked in the mountains of northwest Montana, a charming log cabin (below) overlooks Whitefish Lake.  A collaborative effort between the homeowner and architect Scott Elden of MT- Creative, the 700 square foot retreat features a front facing gable with a shed roof porch.  A massive stone chimney anchors the structure along one side.

Named for its prominent design motif, the "Totems" is a beautifully crafted log cabin in British Columbia, Canada.  Architect Henry Yorke Mann employed massive red and yellow cedar posts to support a cedar shake gable roof with deep overhangs.
